The Monroe Spiral Tube Mist Collector is a two stage unit and does not require filter media for primary mist removal. The spiral tubes provide a high level of mist agglomeration and removal without using filters. Centrifugal force and impaction provide the mechanism for mist removal.
Dirty air is propelled down several spiral shaped impaction tubes and a fluid film is created. The oil drains into the collector bottom. Air changes direction 180°, then enters the second stage HEPA type filter typically rated at a minimum 95% efficiency at 0.3 micron particle size.
Ideally suited for production machining operations with water soluble, synthetic or mineral coolants.
Due to the unique internal design of the Monroe mist collector, the cleaned air will not re-entrain collected pollutants after the primary stage. This improves the efficiency of the separation process and extends the life of the optional final filters.
The Monroe Spiral Tube Mist Collectors provide maximum mist and oil collection efficiency in a mechanical collector. Air processed by the Monroe Spiral Tube Mist Collectors meet air quality standards for in-plant discharge as well as outside exhaust. Discharging clean, filtered air back into the work area can significantly reduce climate control costs.
